Mysterium Magnum

Mysterium Magnum

Another of Jakob Böhme’s ciphers of the mysterium magnum appearing in his Theosophische Wercke (1682). The All Seeing Eye beholds the Phoenix Reborn. This is the Psyche/Soul transcending the encircling lifeworld. The break in the Ouroboros is the Nothing betwixt Alpha & Omega of chronological time. The Soul climbs beyond the Cycle of Birth & Death into the True Origin, the Kairos of the Encompassing, wherein Being is the Beatific Vision.
